Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm going to be be participating in a long term campaign. Each player recieves 250 points for a lord, and i've pretty much decided on a highborn. Could anyone please advice me on any builds?
I like to run a lord with Bow of Loren and Arcane Bodkins.
That gives a much needed armour buster to the WE army. Without it, you'll run into a problem when facing high armoured units.
To Give him some more mobility, I put him on a Great Eagle.
Alter is also nice, maybe even better, but I want him to be the General so all my units can use ld 10. My Treemen have a habit of failing tests.
For protection I give him Glamourweave and the Enchanted Shield.
4+ Armour save and 4+ ward save is pretty much the best you can get in a WE army.
The problem you have is point cost.
I don't have the book on me, but I think he's over the 250. You can drop the Eagle, but that makes it harder to get him where you want, a steed would be a cheap solution.
If you can keep him safe, you could drop the Glamourweave and the shield, but hell be stark naked so never ever let anybody shoot him.
I hope this helps, thb I cant think of a better use for our lord choice than this one. Killing blow is awesome, but no armour save is better imo (for taking out knights etc).
Good luck with your campaign!
I think that really will be useful, seeing as I'll be playing chaos and ogres.
The only problem is that I don't really want him alone on a great eagle, due to some of the ogre and chaos magic.
Also, I'm tempted to make him a more combat based leader, due to my lists already having lots of shooting, with maybe just a cheap magic bow.
I might take amaranthine brooch. I'll probably end up putting him with wild riders, but i'm always open to new ideas!
You've really helped thanks!
P.S: @maximus-prime Your WOC log is awesome!

I do the same thing. I use a highborn on an eagle with lt armor, spear, glamorweave, enchanted shield, bow of loren, arcane bodkins, but he's around 300 points. A lvl 3 weaver with the wand of wych elm might be a good chioce.
If you want him with teh wild riders, he has to be a forest spirit himself, so that means wild rider kindred. Most builds along that line try to be impossible to kill and challenge killy characters (found in WoC and OK), so AoN, oaken armour, but thats over 250 as well . Most cost effective would be teh alter, just depends whether you want him as general or not, waywatcher highborn would be cheap...whats the rest of the army like?
Well my 1000pt army (haven't made a decent 2000pt yet) is:
spellsinger lvl 2
dryads x 8
dryads x 8
gg x 10
gg x 10
6 x wr
7 x wd
The campaign im going to be playing is like mighty empires (slight rule changes), so I will only start with a 1500 list and a lord, but cities give you money to buy more armies.
